OJS Session(?) problems in IE5+ and Firebird

Postby ramon » Wed Oct 15, 2003 7:22 am

We are having a problem in the reviewer section. This is what happens:
1 - we log in as a reviewer, click on reviewer to view their records
2 - we sign out from this reviewer.
3 - we log in as another reviewer, with different name/password, and click reviewer to view their records
4 - the record visible is the previous reviewer´s record.

If we force refresh (CTRL-F5) we then view the current reviewer´s record (this happens in IE5.5 + and Mozilla Firebird).

we tried adding the following metas in the header.php in include/ and admin/include, but nothing happened.

<meta name="Pragma" content="no-cache">
<meta name="Cache-Control" content="no-cache">
<meta name="Expires" content="Mon, 06 Jan 1990 00:00:01 GMT">

We would like to know if anyone else is having these problems and how they got solved...

This does not happen in Netscape Navigator 6

We would like to add that we are behind a firewall for internet access and use specific proxy settings for local network access. We don´t know if these could be a problem.

If you're accessing the site through a proxy cache, I suspect that is the cause.

Have you tried preventing caching through HTTP headers rather than META tags?

For example, you could add something like the following to a common file, such as admin/include/header.php for admin pages:

Code: Select all

header("Expires: Mon, 26 Jul 1997 05:00:00 GMT");
header("Cache-Control: no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate");
header("Cache-Control: post-check=0, pre-check=0", false);
header("Pragma: no-cache");

Apparently using the http header properties worked...

we still need to test it on older computers, used by the journal´s workers....

thanks again
